Vintage Lone Star

My paternal grandmother, Martha, made this quilt in the 1920's. The pieces are so evenly cut it may have been a kit. It was on my parent's bed for years.

Unfortunately, the fabric is giving out. I'm more accustomed to fabric wearing out at a certain color first, probably from the metallics in the dye. This one is odd; it looks like it's been sliced with a rotary cutter every quarter inch along the weft of each piece in the top. I'm just glad my parents used and enjoyed this quilt.

Fret not; enjoy the day.
